“People in Kosovo look me as a hero. I just proved them that if they want to have something, they can have it.“ It is with those words that Mijlinda Kelmendi launched the Olympic Channel documentary dedicated to the first ever Olympic Gold Medal won by Kosovo. This was in Rio 2016, and this weekend, Mijlinda Kelmendi will again be in action at the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam. Discover the film produced by the Olympic Channel.
